Representatives of the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation (BBHLF), Phillips 66 and Lone Star Sports & Entertainment, a subsidiary of the Houston Texans, geared up for football season and National Literacy Month by volunteering at the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff Reading Event. The team, including two-time All-American and Heisman Trophy finalist Charles Alexander and two former quarterbacks of the Houston Oilers, Dan Pastorini and Don Trull, served as “coaches” as they read one-on-one to second-grade students at Walnut Bend Elementary School on the first day of school, as part of National Literacy Month. Pictured (from left) are Charles Alexander, Don Trull, Tanglewood residents Neil and Maria Bush, co-chairs of the BBHLF, Dan Pastorini, and Dr. Julie Baker Finck, president of the BBHLF.
